KIRKUS REVIEW

The story of the world and its people, written in letter form by Prime Minister Nehru to his ten-year-old daughter, India, in 1928. Included are stories of the solar system, the development of life and the coming of man, the emergence of tribal organizations, divisions of races; agriculture, religion and ancient civilizations. These are letters any child would love to receive from a devoted father who enriches the story of mankind with his understanding of his daughter's world. The fiery insistence on human brotherhood, peace and moral values brings the past into a challenging present in which the child will feel himself a part. ""Text book"" sketches by Richard Albany.
